Col Enneigé Lors Du Tour Du Mont Blanc

The early summer Mont Blanc tour :)

Why choose a Megève tour guide for your Tour du Mont Blanc?

The Tour du Mont Blanc is an emblematic hike that attracts many nature lovers and challenge-seekers every year. This summer, the route has a few surprises in store for hikers. Here’s the latest information from the Bureau des Guides to help you prepare for this unforgettable adventure.

Persistent snow on the passessnow-covered pass on the tour du mont blanc

At the start of summer, the snow is still very present on the heights. The Tour du Mont Blanc passes are still covered by a significant layer of snow. Hikers should therefore be equipped accordingly, with crampons indispensable for safely negotiating these passages. It’s worth noting that the absence of night-time refreezing can sometimes make the path easier, as the snow creates a more linear surface than the usual stones. Our guides also recommend walking poles for added stability.

Water on the Path

A little further down the trails, another peculiarity of this early summer becomes apparent: the increased presence of water. The spring rains and melting snow have waterlogged some sections of the route, creating wet, playful passages. This situation has given rise to the term “AcquaRando” to designate those sections where hikers will have to cross streams and muddy areas. These passages add a touch of fun and adventure to the ride, transforming the challenge into a true aquatic exploration. Waterproof hiking boots and a good pair of gaiters are highly recommended to keep feet dry. Embrace the spirit of adventure and enjoy these paths transformed into real AcquaRando trails!
